The orders are in. Plants will start arriving in March. Lilacs, Hydrangea, Peonies, Verbena, Morning Glory and more.
I decided not to alter the size or shape of the beds. Most existing plants and trees (dashed circles in plan) will remain.
I am, however, debating removing the shed one day so that I can have more room to plant or sit in the sun. The garage has plenty of room for storage and a potting bench.
I should get into landscape design. Right?
The grape trellis in the above plan is not complete. I’m researching how to build one with the existing poles meant for an awning.
After a few days of gray the sun was finally out and in every room. I swapped out the thicker curtains in the dining room with sheer linen to let even more light in.
With the New Year approaching and a stubborn cold that I wanted to shake off, I decided it was time to move. Really, I couldn’t watch another comedy special. I watched them all. It was time to paint.
I started with the kitchen wall which is seen from the living room and dining nook.
I found this copy of the ‘Long Island Pulse‘, my very first, at the Jamesport Country Kitchen.
Like Edible East End, the Pulse covers notable, local foodie haunts and topics. But it also points out where to find fashion, film, music and local art exhibits – topics which the writers of Edible don’t chew on.
On LawwngEyeland?! Bubby, we don’t need to head to the city no moah!
